It’s been seven years since our first release! From a little corner in Nina’s closet to her garage, to a small office, and now in a 2000 square feet warehouse with shelves stocked from top to bottom - Waffle Flower has come a long way!
We can’t say thank you enough to our crafty friends and our customers! Waffle Flower wouldn’t be here without your support! It's our top priority this year to give back to our amazing community and here are three ways to join the fun!
Join the Fun!
Weekly IG Picks
Sunshine and Alicia work along with Nina at our office in Mesa, AZ. Besides our specialties, we also share many fun tasks including picking out the cards to feature each week! Check out the latest from Sunshine here and Alicia here! All you need to do to give us the permission to feature your project(s) in our IG Pick Videos is to add hashtag #waffleflowercrafts to your post(s) using our products on Instagram.
It's our simple belief that "art knows no boundaries". Our design team members are from around the globe. They've been sharing their talents with us by making the beautiful project samples with every release! And starting this month, they are taking turns to host a weekly challenge on every Friday! You can enter on our Challenge Blog (via a link party), Instagram (via a hashtag), and/or Facebook (via our Group Album). Hope you will join us and have fun!
Virtual Classes / Lives
Many of you probably discovered us from the short clips we share on Instagram? Arjita, Channin and Galina are the key contributors to these short videos. Channin has also been hosting lives on our Instagram every Friday (about 3pm AZ time). You can always check back for the previous live archived in our IGTV!
Starting this month, we are expanding our free education to our Facebook Group (Arjita and Galina) and YouTube Channel (Channin)! The live time varies so please check out each announcement for details!
We are also trying to coordinate Channin's YouTube Lives with our releases so that you can save by purchasing a Class Kit, knowing that Channin will walk you through the process of creating the featured card! The March 23rd Class Kits are currently sold-out but will be restocked! No purchase is required to watch our live classes (and you can watch the replays at any time)!
7 Top Selling Collections - Day 1
Hello again, everyone! It's Nina here! I am switching back to my own voice because each and every one of the collections are very dear and personal to me :)
First one up is a fairly new but definitely popular collection designed by our fellow cardmaker JJ Bolton!
Waffle Flower x JJ Bolton
JJ started designing for Waffle Flower in 2019 but she and I have been blogging friends since 2010. I've always admired her cardmaking style and her personality. She is the kind of friends that would be there for you when in need. What amazes me is that she's always got the right words to say. If you take a look at her sentiment stamps, you will know what I mean!
This is one of JJ's first designs with Waffle Flower. It was one of its kind when it came out in 2019 and is still unique today.
This was one of the designs that I'd had doubt until I saw the design team samples! I know, Channin is amazing! Her Start-to-Finish Video on our YouTube channel shows you how to make these cuties yourself! Great minds think alike, you may also want to check out this shaker card video by one of our favorite card designers: Kristina Werner!
The design team completely knocked it out of the park with this set! You will need to check out all the samples on the product page and this video by the one and only Jennifer McGuire for a very creative use of the die!
If you've been following along with our releases, you would have guessed that this paper pad is a best seller, right? It is designed to work with Big Dots Die, Fresh Rainbow Panel Die, Hearts Panel Die, Stars Panel Die, and Trees Panel Die! There are about 40 samples including tutorial videos on the product page, check them out there! Need more inspiration? Check out this video by rock star designer Cathy Zielske!
